I roar 
Laugh so hard, tears uncontrollably roll down my cheeks
I roar 

hurt so hard 
cried so hard
peanut brain spins with confusion
and awe,
whispers 
how did you survive that? 
Magumbo?

tummy, heart,
Lungs, kidneys, every organ,
spirit, intricate details of my being
Rumbles 
It can only be God...

Coventry, UK July 2020

So...
you were saying…
The voice tone, 
Picks you up by the arms
Arms above your head
And a warmth, some vibration brews up somewhere in your mwongo
Then your Lungs contract and expand 
You find yourself there…

There…
where it all started

You mean the voice, the tone takes you 
There? 
Picks you up by the arms
Arms above your head
And a warmth, some vibration brews up somewhere in your mwongo
Then your Lungs contract and expand 
You find yourself there

I see... 
You are bitter...
